Ah Well, we are back.

Three days on Captiva Island. Great place. We stayed at Jensens on the Beach. They have a cluster of cabin/houses with direct beach access. Good service and immaculate accommodations. We saw dolphins about 30 yards off the beach, penguins, and a very laid back Egret which for lack of any other name I called Ralph (Ralph Cramden for you older folks). Back to work getting ready to submit a piece for the St Augustine Art Association’s show later this month. Most likely a watercolor.
